In an earlier blog post I bemoaned the length of time being taken for the Labour leadership campaign. And now we are nearly at the end of July, and still it goes on! The candidates have now canvassed support, and CLPs and Unions have made their preferences. So what is still to be done? Rather than delay another month, it would be far better to have the election in early August. The sooner our new leader is in place, the sooner we can move on and provide a credible opposition to the ConDems. The continuing delay is nothing but harmful and frustrating!
